Sofia Vergara Dishes About Fiancé Joe Manganiello In New Vanity Fair

Sofia Vergara is poised to make a box office splash with the upcoming action/comedy Hot Pursuit with Reese Witherspoon, so it's no wonder she's getting the splashy Vanity Fair treatment this May. Inside, the leading lady details the ins and outs of breaking into Hollywood as a Latina, but of course she also shared a cute anecdote about how she got together with her fiancé, Joe Manganiello.      

Manganiello, who was caught seriously checking out Vergara's behind in a photo from the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner, wasn't shy about pursuing the star as soon as she was back on the market. Apparently, the True Blood star reached out to Vergara's Modern Family costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson to fix them up, although she was initially wary — but not for why you'd think.

"I'm like, 'Jesse, no, he's too handsome,'" she told Vanity Fair. "Then after two days of Jesse trying to convince me, I'm like, 'Okay, give him my number.' I'm thinking, I'm in New Orleans shooting and he's in L.A. Nothing's going to happen," adding, "But, we started talking a lot, and then he showed up in New Orleans. Since then we've been inseparable." They got engaged last December.

Check out this video for some behind-the-scenes details about the photo shoot and more.
